public class: AuthenticationException [javadoc | source]
java.lang.Object
   java.lang.Throwable
      java.lang.Exception
         javax.naming.NamingException
            javax.naming.NamingSecurityException
               javax.naming.AuthenticationException

All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable

This exception is thrown when an authentication error occurs while accessing the naming or directory service. An authentication error can happen, for example, when the credentials supplied by the user program is invalid or otherwise fails to authenticate the user to the naming/directory service.

If the program wants to handle this exception in particular, it should catch AuthenticationException explicitly before attempting to catch NamingException. After catching AuthenticationException, the program could reattempt the authentication by updating the resolved context's environment properties with the appropriate appropriate credentials.

Synchronization and serialization issues that apply to NamingException apply directly here.
